Beard

WHEN:

5th March 2015 to 29th March 2015
Free Entry

WHERE:

Somerset House, The Strand, London, WC2R 0QU

WHAT:

In March 2015, Somerset House will present a series of portraits by photographer Mr Elbank in which all of the subjects sport a beard. Featuring over 80 images exhibited for the first time and exploring the art of grooming, the show will celebrate the enduring beard trend which has exploded across the world. The pogonophiles come from all corners of the globe and from all walks of life; it includes the famous facial hairs of actor John Hurt, models Ricki Hall and Billy Huxley, and artist Gavin Turk, but also other interesting characters such as tattooist Miles Better and British bearded woman Harnaam Kaur, who has been growing a beard since the age of 16 after being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome, a condition which causes excess hair growth.

Much of Mr Elbank’s beard series will be recognisable to the social media generation after one of his early portraits of Australian charity campaigner Jimmy Niggles went viral and he became a social media sensation.
